Rosalba Rukmini Ramana: I think the Gaudiya Matha breaks the guru parampara with the excuse Rajiv cited by saying: we cannot be devotees just by reading the (Srila Prabhupada's) shastra. Just yesterday I went to one 'devotee' house. He had just became a devote few months after me. He took initiation from GBC guru Bhagavan das (like me). When Bhagavan left, then he took initiation from Govinda maharaja. I do not know if he is also with Gour Govinda or someone else. Just I know he is Gaudya Math. Govinda then gave initiation to the daughter of this 'devotee' too, 13years old. Not chanting any rounds, not following religious principles. (Just vegetarian) she even does not know who is her spiritual master. Anyway, yesterday I have seen their pancha tattva altar, and their guru-parampara. There is Govinda mj, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta, Srila Bhaktivinode, S. Gaur Kishore etc. BUT Srila Prabhupada is not even there. They read other kinds of spiritual books, and they distribute other books. And they are free from the regulative principles. The Gaudya math started to glorifiy Srila Prabhupada, after His unnatural departure. Just to try to approach His confused devotees, who gradually left iskcon, by the failure of the self appointed gurus. Now they have reached their goal. They kicked off Srila Prabhupada as our Jagat Guru! They advertise us and my God-brothers as all envious and poison snakes! I tell you all readers! They tell that you will reach Vaikunta, but the truth is that, their best possibility, you will just reach the Brahaman and then you have to come back again to the material world. Only a pure lover of the Lord can give you or 'me' love for the Lord! The choice is yours! Hare Krishna!
